About Mainstreet's Young Professionals Network (YPN)

The Future of the Real Estate Industry - Not just for Gen X and Y!

In a field that is a second career for many people, new real estate practitioners often strive for a way to make connections in the industry and tap into valuable resources that will help them gain business savvy and be successful. At Mainstreet, the primary goal of the YPN is to identify and connect with future leaders in the industry. We strive to connect REALTORS® in all stages of their careers together to allow for knowledge sharing, referral sources and a stronger connection with the Association. We also look to "redefine" real estate by keeping up with and addressing current trends and issues happening in the real estate industry right now.
Mainstreet's YPN was created in 2009. Through networking events, informational sessions and our Facebook Group, the program gives members the tools they need to advance their careers, stay up on current industry trends and have fun in the process.
